Prima Doll stamp

This is the stamp I used what I did with it as a guest designer on Ali-Crafts blog I really enjoyed doing it they are great stamps to use and in so  many different ways .

I started with a kraft card as the base. I then cut some black card slightly smaller than the base card and then a smaller piece of kraft card. I stamped the Prima Doll on right hand side then stamped Tim Holtz ruler down left hand side using Archival Ink and some others of Tim's stamps randomly on card with walnut stain ink. Gave the stamped doll a bit of colour using Promarkers I also added a few measurements to image I then edged all around with walnut stain distress ink. Then using a mannequin from Craftwork Cards stamp a text on it and coloured with walnut stain. I then stamped  doll again on one of the tags I was sent with stamp. I then cut out the skirt and also cut of the lace around the hem I coloured the skirt with Promarkers  I then put some proper lace along the bottom and around the waist attached it to the card on right hand side added a flower to the top of mannequin.I then stamped the word inspire on a piece of the tag put it into a metal frame and attach to bottom left hand corner.I have enjoyed doing the challenge and the stamp stamps beautifully every time.
